Incorrect permissions on the server. You need to set write permissions for data and internal_data.

If you have shell access then run these commands to recursively set permissions in those directories:

Code:
chmod -R 777 data

chmod -R 777 internal_data
You might also try 755 permissions. Depending on how PHP is installed, 755 may still be writable. I have seen some server configurations throw errors with 777.

Or many FTP clients can set permissions too (if you don't have shell access).
